Sailor 目前无人评价

Favillae

少年把皇家海军名舰胡德号的照片别在卧室墙上,受她激励而立志当一名水手,多好的故事啊,没看评论前我就信了,阿姨你为什么要戳穿这样美好的想象。。。(也很可能Sailor不睡他的卧室后就把照片取下来了,母亲不一定注意到孩子的所有细节吧)

Many years later, his mother commented on an article in an American magazine which stated that Sailor had a photo of the Royal Navy ship H.M.S. Hood pinned on his bedroom wall during his high school days and the picture had inspired him to be a sailor: “I’m sorry. It’s a nice story, but I’ve no recollection of it. Certainly not in his Wellington days before he joined the ship. We were living in Malherbe Street then and Adolph and Ralph slept on the stoop. I had boarders in the other bedrooms. I don’t think I would have forgotten if there had been such a picture on the wall.”

所以Sailor在13岁时就提出要进商船队当一名cadet了,对于一个南非农场里土生土长起来的孩子,通过海上远行见识世界满足冒险心和求知欲,大概是最自然不过的。而飞行这种概念可能根本不曾出现在他少年的脑海里。当一名飞行员显然比做一名职业海员谋生计的理想不着边际和不现实多了。
